Henry Ford College (HFC) was founded almost 80 years ago, with a goal of providing quality instructional programming with state-of-the art equipment and training for local students who were already in the manufacturing workforce. This legacy continues, and today we have become a respected leader in developing the workers of tomorrow through exceptional, affordable education and training.
We believe that through higher education, everyone has a chance to become whatever they aspire to be – no matter their age, background or financial need. Each year, the College serves more than 10,000 students as they work toward a degree or transfer to four-year institutions. HFC also serves those seeking a quicker track into the workforce. Hundreds of high school students turn to HFC to get a jumpstart on higher education credits. Hundreds more students of all ages come for industry certification and retraining for new careers.
The majority of our students face substantial challenges in gaining an education. Some are economically or educationally challenged. Others are first-generation students and international students for whom English is a second language. The education they receive here will transform their lives and those of their families.
We are committed to keeping an education within the reach of individuals from all walks of life and to provide them with the learning environment, entrepreneurial skills and global perspective needed to succeed. This requires direct financial support to students in need and enhancement of our technology and program offerings to ensure that our students have the skills needed for professional success. We are dedicated to making sure HFC is here for generations to come.
Our future relies on you. Imagine what your investment can mean – providing an education for a first-generation college student, preparing our local workforce for a global economy, creating entrepreneurs and building a stronger community for years to come. You can help fulfill the promise of all the students who attend HFC.
With your help, we can make our vision for the future a reality.
